This thesis is written as a guide for environmental conservationists in the Muslim world. It explains the Islamic environmental perspective and details how it can be used as a method for promoting environmental awareness, increasing local legitimacy among Muslims who interact with the conservation zone and promote sustainable behavior by highlighting Muslim obligations to the environment. It is hoped that this work will serve as a resource for conservation projects looking for new and innovative tactics in their work.
